Are You Having Pregnancy Symptoms?Are you having pregnancy symptoms

Do you think that you might be pregnant?  According to the Mayo Clinic, pregnancy symptoms will often appear in the first few weeks after conception.  Although you won’t know for sure until you take a pregnancy test, experiencing any of the symptoms below might hint that you have conceived.

Slight Bleeding and Mild Cramps

Slight bleeding can occur from the implantation of the egg into the uterus.  For many women, implantation bleeding resembles the start of the period but is milder.  However, if you suspect that you are pregnant and the bleeding continues, is severe, or is accompanied by painful cramps, it may signal a more serious problem.  If this is the case, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Missed Period

A missed period is a common sign that conception has occurred.  Once an egg has implanted into your uterus, menstruation will typically cease during the nine months of gestation.  Nevertheless, since a missed period can be the result of other changes, such as an increase in stress, you will still need to take a pregnancy test to determine whether you are pregnant.

Swollen, Tender Breasts

If you are pregnant, you may notice that your breasts have become swollen and tender.  Increased blood flow and hormonal changes can make your breasts swollen and tender to the touch.

Increased Fatigue

If you are experiencing increased fatigue, it may be a sign that your body is adjusting to pregnancy.  Hormonal changes and blood sugar fluctuations can both make you tired during the beginning of your pregnancy.

Nausea

Are you having bouts of nausea without vomiting?  You might be experiencing morning sickness!  Nausea is a very early sign of pregnancy, and nausea in combination with other symptoms may signal that conception has occurred.

If you think you might be pregnant, a pregnancy test will tell you with certainty whether or not you have conceived.  For more information about pregnancy, please visit our website or contact us through our forums for more information.
